I get a lot of questions
and comments through e-mails, so I thought it would be helpful
and/or amusing to everybody if I posted them here. If you see
yourself on here and don't want your name displayed, or if you
don't want any part of your e-mail made public, let me know and
I will remove it. However, if I deem you to be an idiot, I will
post your name and e-mail address, and any other contact info
you are stupid enough to send me. No more Mr. Nice Guy!
putting up the information on your
website about tips. As you stated
this has always been a big
discussion on all forums I
frequent. You explained things very
well. I really liked the part about
things not to say when you are
stiffing. I have seen so many
people do many of those things. It
is sad. I have been surprised by
waitresses getting back to me
quickly before and not having my
money ready. I discussed this with
my husband as well and we both agree
now that you pointed it out that it
waists your time. If you are very
busy I see how waiting for people
could put you behind. The main time
I have had this happen to me is when
I have ordered a water and the
waitress hands it to me right off
her tray. From now on I will have
my tip ready when I order so if it
gets there quicker than I thought, I
won't be making the server wait.
This is why I
rarely give away extra drinks on my
tray. People usually aren't
prepared to get a drink that fast,
and also, people are more apt to tip
if they think you went to get it
rather than just hand them one right
away. Sometimes I'll even just
walk around the row of machines or
tables. Then it's, "Wow - that
was fast!" and I impress the
customer and may even get a bigger
tip. Airhead waitress my ass!
site, good clean comedy! Here's
my question. Once a year the
old college buddies and I make
our annual pilgrimage to Vegas,
(still trying to hold on to our
youth as desperately as we are
to our hairlines). We often
enjoy the witty banter and
repartee of a cocktail sever who
understands how easily money can
be made from smiling pleasantly
at men who have little left in
life except endless mortgage
payments, college tuitions,
eventual strokes and adult
diapers. As you have noted the
mathematical formula on your
site of "bigger tits=bigger
tips" and referenced many
skilled surgeons in that field,
my question is this: Since you
have enhanced your already
preposterous beauty, is it in
poor taste for us to blatantly
stare at the work of such fine
physicians? Please note: We
are from Ohio, seeing one, let
alone dozens, of paralyzingly
beautiful women, scantily
clad, bearing alcohol, is akin
to witnessing an alien
we stare....we try not to...we
even try to speak...but the loss
of blood flow restricts our
movements such that we are
rarely able to observe anything
above the neckline. Should we
even try to hide this fact, or
go blind looking just as our
mother's told us? DAMN THESE
Jay...has college taught you nothing?
I hate to contradict your mother but,
looking doesn't cause blindness, point your
hairy palms elsewhere. The answer is,
yes, of course it's in poor taste, but now
that I see the direction your life is
taking, go ahead and stare. Just
remember, those fine physicians cost a lot
of money, so make sure you still have enough
clarity and movement to follow that
Love the website.
I did not see the drink 7 & 7 mentioned, but
I was glad to see that it was NOT mentioned
under old white guys. LOL
Friend of mine just moved from the central
coast of Ca and bought into Sammy’s Dog
They say it’s the best pastrami sandwich in
Thanks for the tip info.
Didn't I put 7&7 under HOT
Young White Guys? Haven't been to Sammy's
but I love pastrami sandwiches. I'll have
to check it out.
That last one (August 2005 Daily Rounds)

I've enjoyed reading your entries. And,
your posts on LVTalk.

of warning on your August Daily

advisor web site.

Was a cool
freakin site. I just love it. So

Thanks for the
site really appreciate your help!
Don't know if you saw me or not.
Apparently, people don't recognize me in person.
In any case, I hope you had a great visit!
been to your site for a while, the last time you
were pregnant, now i see you had a very good looking
boy CONGRATS don
Thanks Don. I think he's quite
hey there, i just wanted to say
that your site was very informative and very funny. Keep
up the good work, and i've even posted one of your
entries on my blog...
if you'd like, check it out at
good luck on your future endeavors, and congrats on the
I've got you on my
Cool web site.
Just wanted to say I always order coffee and a bottled
water. It's not to score "two" drinks. I enjoy coffee for
coffee sake but it leaves me thirsty and thats what the
water is for.
To date, I have never been refused the water...ever. I've
always tipped a dollar. Was I supposed to tip $2? It never
ocurred to me.
You are allowed two drinks if one or both
are non-alcoholic. That extra dollar is not going to
make or break a cocktail waitress, but you should never tip
less than a dollar a drink.
the site and love the info. Nice to know my dollar tip
isn’t being cheap. Also nice to know I never got a
second drink as I probably wouldn’t have tipped the
second time – not being cheap so much as just stupid.
Now I know – I won’t ‘skip’ tips. :)
just got one question for you – Did you get hit with
another virus or something? I understand the Daily
Rounds are updated daily or ‘whenever I damn will feel
like it!’ – so daily is more of a guideline than a hard
fact. If you miss a day, I’m cool. If you miss a week,
I can deal with it. A month – no problem.
two and a half months, I have to ask if there’s an
issue. Not being impatient. Just being a nosy bastard.
– yes, the song is cool. After 2 ½ months, it’s getting
old. Not to mention it scares the shit out of me half
the time because I forget it’s there.
Anyway – love the site. Hope you come back soon.
I admit I am a slacker, but sometimes,
believe it or not, all you have to do is refresh the page.
Now, the catch-22 is, how do you know you have to refresh the
page if you have to refresh the page to see this message?
I like your updated website, but it threw me off at first. I had
bookmarked your old FAQ page which is how I got to your Daily
Rounds (not sure why I did it that way). Anyway, the old FAQ
page is still around and linked to the old Daily Rounds, so I
was just assuming you hadn't posted any new rounds for a couple
of months for some reason (illness, prison, practicing for next
year's American Idol). Then I clicked on "Home" and saw that you
have a whole new look. I like that it doesn't have the double
scroll bars anymore: much easier to read.
And now I have a couple of months of Daily Rounds "saved up" so
how much better can life get? Seriously, I love your wit and the
way you describe the crazy things that happen to you. I hope to
run into you at work someday and see how many clueless questions
I can ask you before you realize that I read your site and smack
me with your tray. So, do you live around here?
Hey, Jim, maybe you can help out Dave
(above). By the way, I like how you snuck in "prison"
between concern (illness) and flattery (practicing for American
Idol). I'll be sure to save a special smack just for you.
Will you be posting more new pics soon?
Probably not in Pics of the Week.
Honestly, here's how I feel about modeling: it's stupid.
Unless you are making money at it, it's the most narcissistic
waste of time I can think of. My boyfriend is a
photographer and I would say that 90% of the "models" he shoots
are just girls who have an hyper inflated image of themselves.
These are the same girls who go on Howard Stern and want him to
evaluate them for Playboy, then cry and make excuses (I'm on my
period so I'm bloated, I gave birth to three kids right before
the show so that's why I have stretch marks, my dog ate my face
so that's why I'm fucking ugly...but usually I'm hot, at least
that's what all the drunk guys tell me when I go out to the
clubs every weekend.) when he tells them they look like Roseanne
Barr pre-plastic surgery. So why did I take the pictures
to begin with? When I first started this web site it was
really just a joke, a sarcastic and fun way to rant about my
job. I did it for my friends who knew me and I knew would
understand my sense of humor and not take it seriously.
But I also wanted to generate new visitors and keep them coming
back, so what better way is there than adding some trashy
pictures? I hate everything about modeling; I hate getting
ready, I hate posing, I hate changing clothes...I am the worst
model my boyfriend has ever worked with.
In no way do I claim to be a model or even impersonate one.
Anyway, now that my web site has been around awhile, my
pseudo-modeling days are over. I will only take pictures
if I'm drunk.
Love your website its very
fun and informative.
I really enjoy the daily
round stories which is very fun to read while I'm taking a
break at work.
Personally I like the
section that you have on who orders what and how to order.
One question on the section on who orders what when you put
in these drinks that Asians drink Heineken, Gin & Tonic etc
are they for Asian guys or girls. Just curious.
Now everytime I go into a
bar or order a drink at Casio I try to remember Dollie's
how to order a drink rules.
Usually Asian men order Heinekens and Asian
women order gin and tonics.
My wife and I just wanted to thank you for
We are coming to Las Vegas next month and the only real concern
I have about the trip is how to act with all the Vegasism's,
however your site cleared up most of my concerns! Now if you
could just tell us where to not lose money while gambling and
this trip would be perfect!
We both enjoyed your web-site, very informative, realistic,
honest and loads of help for the Vegas neophyte type such as
ourselves. I can't believe I forgot to mention humorous as well,
we were both laughing going through things. I hope the bulk of
folks we deal with while we are there are at least close to your
standard. Thanks again and your son is very cute,
Well, I don't know which machines are the
lucky ones, but I know one thing for sure, don't hit the ATM -
you will lose 100% of the time.
This may be an oddball question.....Any
casinos serve IBC root beer?
I doubt it, at least not in the casino or at
the bars. All the non-alcoholic drinks served are called
"mixers," that is, they can be mixed with alcohol to make a
cocktail. So you will have your basic sodas like Coke,
Diet Coke, 7UP, ginger ale, soda, and tonic. Juices will
be orange, cranberry, pineapple, sweet and sour, tomato, and
clamato. If you are a high roller you can probably get
things not normally offered, like Diet 7UP, mango juice, or even
IBC Root Beer.
Do the waitresses at the higher end hotels such as The Bellagio,
expect a bigger tip than say, your average downtown casino? This
would be for me, sitting at a poker table, probably in a
tournament, as I don't play cash games.... Thanks for your time
I don't know if they "expect" a bigger tip,
but they are probably "accustomed" to it. If you tipped a
dollar a drink at Bellagio you would probably receive a polite
thank you. If you tipped the same dollar at Whiskey Pete's
in Primm, you'd probably get a drink every two minutes and have
to tip the waitress another dollar to leave you alone.
I work with a guy
,that when he goes to Vegas, he tips CW and dealers with
Be our guest cards, called BOG . Food meal cards good at ,
say a , McDonalds .
free value meals
ect, I thought that was pretty cheap of him, maybe you have
heard of this,, I lauged out loud for sure, since has money
to burn , and gets the meal cards for nothing !! let me
know, you may have run into him !! thanks,, Jim
Oh yeah, the BOG guy. I thought it
stood for Big Ole Gilbo. I hope he's lovin' it!
By happenstance I found your
site, after that I wasn't able to leave it without
reading everything. My name is George and live in
Louisville, Kentucky being from the middle America it's
refreshing to find someone who is to the point and treat
people for who they are and not for the size of their
bankroll. That being said you have the savvy to handle
difficult situations. I been to Vegas several times in
the last few years and always wondered how the
heck young women like yourself put up with all the rude
and crude people. As a business owner I understand how
the public treats the front line employees like
yourself. All I can say is you do an amazing job and
earn every dollar. I really loved your site and all the
info about tipping and the stories about people you
meet. I myself do strike up conversations with people
while Iam playing or late at night to a cocktail
waitress because everyone has a different take on life.
Dollie keep the daily rounds coming. Hope to run into
you next trip to Vegas and pay you a compliment in
Thanks George, if you do see me I'd
love to meet you.
I was curious about your 2 dogs. What breed are they?
They're both so cute, and I've seen Chows before, but
none that look like yours. Did you getthem from the same
breeder? I enjoyed reading your website too!
Both are Chows.
That's their story and they're sticking to it. The
black one, Belle, my boyfriend got before he met me, but
we're pretty sure she's a purebred. She has the
Chow temperament. The other one, Sasha, my
boyfriend got for me as a present. We went to
somebody's house and she was the only puppy left.
We paid $500.00 for her, and boy did it turn out to be a
raw deal. She's got a crooked lower fang that
sticks out when she closes her mouth so she looks
defective, and in this case looks are pretty accurate.
She once spent ten minutes barking at my shoe.
They say a dog is only as smart as its owner. She
takes after my boyfriend.
i don't mean to argue with you, you're the cocktail
waitress and I'm not. I'm just surprised at your
observation of what rednecks drink. See I'm a redneck
and the only thing on that list that I wouldn't sneer at
a buddy for ordering is the Yukon Jack (though I steer
clear of sweet stuff myself). What happened to Good old
fashioned Beer? Or whiskey, or even Tequila?
I would personally make anybody that came to my deer
camp with a bottle of Ameretto, walk home.
Thet's amaretta, as enny true redneck
kin tell yo'. An' befo'e yo' reckon ah jest fell off th'
turnip truck, take a look at th' yo'ng white guys
likkers list. Thar's some crost-breedin' gwine on, as
enny fool kin plainly see.
For more fun with dialects, visit
Thanks...In the future, I will tip
I'm sure the waitresses will
Dollie – I ran across your website – and its
I love the tips (especially on tipping) me and
my wife have been to Vegas a few times, and we
always tip (even if it’s just coke) – like you
said – bringing a drink is service.
It cracks me up the people who think they’re
getting ripped off with their ‘free drinks’. I
mean, if its watered down or not, who cares –
I’ve got to say – your pictures are very sexy –
and your baby boy is adorable!
Keep up the webpage – lots of good info and
stories on there!
Don’t work too hard out there!
That gives me an idea. I
could offer watered down drinks for free, and
unwatered down drinks for a dollar. Oh wait, I
already do that. Just kidding. Unwatered
down drinks are five dollars.
Just wanted to
tell you how informative and funny your site was.
You should seriously consider combining your stories
and writing a book!
I am a middle
aged straight woman who visits LV about once a year
so I'm definately not trying to "meet and greet".
Just a new fan, who will hear your literary voice
each time I have an interaction with a cocktail
waitress. Thank you for your insights! Tricia from
PS Your little
guy is absolutely gorgeous! God Bless
My boyfriend doesn't like being
called the "little guy"...oh, you mean my son!
Yeah, he's my yummy. We're engaged.
I'm going to Vegas in three weeks for the first time
ever. I found a link to your site on the Las Vegas
Advisor forums. Your site is great. I plan on using your
ordering and tipping tips when I'm there. Thanks to you,
I shouldn't look like too much of an idiot!
Well, we'll see...
Just remember: Idiot with a Big
Tip = Genius Who Will Receive Many Strong Hygienic
Drinks in a Timely Manner with a Smile.
